Great carvings Bill

Back to the grindstone here - but this is the week when i might start making it home before dark.  

Found a birdsong tinternet site last night - might try and teach myself one song at a time - currently can only recognise great tit - which the tutorial tells me is the easiest one.  But once upon a time i couldn't name plants - so progress is possible

I agree with Nut ????- 6 could be another hosta

Oh my!  Lots to go at !!

plant 1 - don't know

plant 2 - some sort of pink/dianthus

plant 3 - pulmonaria/lungwort

plant 4 - euphorbia, but don't know which type

plant 5 - some sort of hosta

plant 6 - don't know

plant 7 - some sort of hydrangea

plant 8 - possibly a geum (if i am being optimistic) - but more likely a creeping buttercup - not sure anyone would welcome it as a donation, as its more like a curse

Hope this helps

MrsG - result Look forward to following your project. 

Nut - our Roe deer were locking horns on the lawn earlier this week - ?but i thought babies had been made by now?  Bambis will be born next month??

Fidget - fantastic frogs (or are they toads?) - such patience to get shots like that.

Beautiful day - did everything i set out to.  Now putting my feet up before i get the hoover out and clean the bathroom.  Why do weekends fly by?

OH has been busy too.  Our veg garden now has iron gates, and beech hedges round two sides.  Hazel hurdles coming for a third side, plus some wire deer netting til the hedges thicken up enough to form a barrier.  GH relocation yet to happen, but trampoline successfully moved today.  All very exciting
